UPDATED 1/9/13 So life gives us Lemons, sometimes by the bushel full. Computer crashed for good, SUV needed several thousands of dollars to repair. And the list goes on, but once again...thank you for your ratings and kind words...I have to borrow a computer, and use my phone to keep abreast of my swaps. Since I need new glasses, using the phone is prohibitive. But please message me for any reason...If you haven't received a rating or a swap from me. I will respond ASAP. And thanks again to all you wonderful swappers.
I have diverse interests...crochet, altered art, Zentangles, jewelry making, furniture painting, sewing, and the list goes on. More recently since I joined SB, Dotee dolls, pincushions, and I'm gonna try my hand at a matchbox...
Here are a few things that I'm fond of and would like to receive.
LOVE me some shiney stuff...beads, etc. (not however, those beads for mardi gras that are all stuck together with string...
Anything involved with ATC creation. i.e. old greeting cards, snippets of paper, ribbon, fibers, buttons, etc. etc. that can be incorporated into/onto? an ATC.
You can never have too many stickers, papers, stamps, some ink pads with ink still in em'. and the list goes on.
POSTCARDS! I love to do the postcard swaps, I generally don't send them "as is" but try to embellish them in some small way to make them different. But don't travel much, and don't have many cool postcards.
Then there's always stamps, used, old, whatever, old coins with no value (to speak of), from other countries.
Old art from books that are not in great shape anymore... Unuseable but brightly colored, and patterned childrens books, The larger the better to make envies out of. OR...just a couple really beautiful pages. DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT destroy books, I have over 1,000 in my home and still counting, however, when a book has been damaged or partially destroyed, rather than eliminate it, I REPURPOSE the salvagable pages and try to make something beautiful out of what remains.
Old photos, black and white, like from the turn of the century...
Old posters, (I grabbed one from DD the other day while getting coffee, and it makes awesome envies) Pages from wallpaper books...Bright and cheery colors. Pretty and unusual laces, and trims...
Like my crafting interests, my musical, literary and movie choices are vast and varied.
In books everything from Koontz, King, Stirling ) Patterson too, Evanovich (she makes me giggle out loud). I am an avid reader and author's are too many to mention.
Music: Hmmm, ok don't cringe, some classical, and new age. ROCK N ROLL!!! Stones, Doors, AC/DC, Iron Butterfly, Free/Bad Company, Janice Joplin (have ALL her music). Fleetwood Mac, Moody Blues, Joanie Mitchell...Almost any music except thrash and hard core rap.
Movies: Action and adventure, good comedies, and movies that make you think and/or make me cry. Some all time favorites: Practical Magic, Nanny Macphee, Hocus Pocus (sensing a vein here?)
COLORS: are kiwi, lime, and sage greens. Some deep blue, rust, cinnamon...deep tones. I don't really collect much, i have a love of beautiful scarves and pashminas. I also like old China cups and saucers, and Antique buttons. Old mis-matched china but with really neat patterns and colors. I do the shabby chic table during the holidays.
I realized that I hadn't stated any preferences regarding...foods, etc. And there aren't very many preferences, but there are a couple.
I HATE, abhor and despise anything with artificial sweeteners. No chemical sweetners please.
Also, I prefer not to receive religious items. I have a religion,, but don't believe in mixing religion or politics with my relaxation and fun time. Thanks and please don't be offended.
Kiddie stickers, I have no small children
1or 2 sticky notes
Paper torn from a spiral notebook
Pieces cut from an old calender unless it's artsy, or has interesting artwork/pictures
I Don't do farm themes, ducks, chickens and fruit themes
Paint chips, cuz I have a gazillion of em'
In general, junky stuff.
I take a great pleasure in sending off my swaps...I write a card to everyone I send to, and try to explain what went on or was involved in their swap package. I appreciate the same...
So with all of that...thanks for reading all of this clutter. .
SPECIAL NOTICE: Please note, that if you were a partner of mine and you haven't received a rating from me...(and of course, you've sent the item). PLEASE contact me and let me know who you are and what you've sent.
ALSO: I ALWAYS SEND MY SWAPS...If for some reason you haven't received a package from you, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE email me and let me know. I will send off another packet as quick as I'm able.
I'm having some issues with my computer, and I may have missed you unintentionally. I will gladly let you know the status, oh and please DO let me know your SB name...not just your official name. I got something from someone with no identifiers...no swap title, and no SB name...I aim to rate everyone, but like I said, technology can be tough when something goes wrong. THANKS A LOT YA'LL.
